The Black Pearl Bibjohn is 5mm thick from the ankle to just above the hips. Above the hips, it is 3mm thick. All seams are glued and blind-stitched, making them stronger than the rubber itself. The Black Pearl has the same design, construction and fit as the First Wave but it is made of GreenGoma #8 Rubber (replaces Yamamoto #38). This model offers a very affordable option without sacrificing warmth, comfort and durability. All De Soto T1 Wetsuits are sold as separates for a more customized fit.
First in the industry to introduce limestone rubber into wetsuits, De Soto T1 Wetsuits incorporate the amazing GreenGoma Rubber offering better stretch, buoyancy, durability and insulation with a more closed-cell injected construction making it 98.9% water impermeable. It’s lighter, dries quicker and lasts longer. The only part of the rubber that gets wet is the new stretch liner that is now made of recycled post-consumer products.
